Written for the NGADM 17 Round 1.

Really enjoyed writing this one! It did not start out as a bossa nova, but after hearing it with lyrics we decided that was the way to go. This is a foray into new territory for us, very happy with how it turned out. The lyrics are from the perspective of a lover who is faithful toward a lover who is not.


Oh my love
You've run so far, but still not enough
Fill my cup
With wine from the living stream
With hope from your melody
With tears from the song you sing

Stay with me
Come rest your eyes under my see
Watch me bleed
My strength falls apart again
My hope sifts into the wind
Betrayed by the love you spend

If you would run into another's arms, I'll stay
And I will wait for you until my dying day

It's been only you
With all of my life
I'll wait for your love
Fighting for truth
Dying for hope
Memories fade
And come back to life

I will watch over you until your night turns day
And if you fall I'll be the one who lights your way
Oh, that love would find a way

This is amazing!

Right off the bat, I love the instrumentation and the soulful vocals. Perhaps I would’ve liked to hear more of a clear intro instead of being thrown right into the action - even a quick drum fill - but maybe that’s a little picky. The lyrics are really strong, and the production quality is amazingly high. I think the vocals are not quite as pronounced in the mix as they should be at 1:36, but I loved the injection of passion there. The same is also true of 2:25, in fact. Still, that’s my main complaint. I also thought the ending could’ve been a little stronger - less abrupt, perhaps. All the same, you’ve put an amazing amount of effort into the composition here, and my mouse was spamming the invisible download button for quite some time. Keep it up, guys!

Alas, still no downloads for now. I appreciate you taking the time for the review! Excellent points, will consider them all.

Whoah, this is so far the best submission i have heard in the NGADM 2017 (and i am enamored of Kor Rune). It is totally amazing, superbly mixed, well played and filled with emotion!

bassfiddlejones responds:

A true compliment, thank you sir!

Finally my review :) Great work - just as expected. I like the gentle bossanove feel, the very organic sounding drums and the tremolo strings in the background. Very classic and again another genre. Very solid work. The singing is convincing. Sometimes things become a little bit undefined. Maybe its the cymbals, cant say it exactly, but its really just a minor thing and not really an issue. What can i say: Great track overall - keep it up!

bassfiddlejones responds:

Thanks friend, I always look forward to your feedback. There are a few things I'd like to improve in this song with time!

This is one of my favorite things iv heard in a long time!
Amazing job!
